In addition, here are links to some more resources for Montana families dealing with mental and behavioral health issues. These include information on local groups and services, as well as websites with additional information and help.
Healthy Montana Kids: http://hmk.mt.gov/
Formerly called Children’s Medicaid and CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program), the State of Montana now calls these programs “Healthy Montana Kids” (HMK). This site provides information and applications for these programs. Both programs cover a wide variety of children’s behavioral health services. Eligibility is based on income. We will be happy to help you learn more about your family’s options.
Youth Dynamics Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/ydimt
Our Facebook page is another great resource for families and professionals! This is a casual, laid-back place to learn about upcoming events, training, new research, family resources, and helpful ideas from everyone participating! Please join us for conversation and inspiration; we all stand together for Montana kids!
